Clinical Epidemiology Division

The Clinical Epidemiology program at the Barbara Davis Center encompasses a group of prospective observational research studies focused on the etiology and complications of type 1 diabetes, as well as other autoimmune diseases.  Currently the Clinical Epidemiology Program includes the efforts of 5 Barbara Davis Center faculty investigators and over 40 research staff, adult and pediatric research clinics, and a shared research laboratory.

ASK

The Autoimmunity Screening for Kids (ASK) program (Dr. Rewers, PI) launched a large scale screening initiative to identify children who have pre-symptomatic T1D or celiac disease.  Following the initial planning phase, the program received funding to conduct a 3-year mass screening of 50,000 Denver metro children ages 1-17 with the long term goal of providing strong evidence for adding screening for T1D and celiac disease to routine pediatric practice. ASK participants are enrolling in clinical trials aimed at preventing progression from pre-symptomatic to symptomatic T1D.
